nominated. >> gretchen: why? >> i think that's a fight president obama is not going to pick right now. the last thing he needs with these fiscal cliff negotiation social security a big fight over what happened with benghazi who said what. we know that's exactly what will happen if she has to get confirmed by the senate. maybe later in his second term she'll show up. >> gretchen: remember what he said last time after he was elected, that i won? >> right. >> gretchen: we don't know what he's going to do. but he certainly defended her indignant leta press conference. >> absolutely. i wish he was that indignant about the benghazi attack. i don't think she would be the right pick. she is the face of benghazi. she is the who was touted on five national talk shows about putting this spontaneous attack because of a video out there. so i don't know why the president would want to pick this fight when he has so many other issues to deal with. i just don't think the general public who has been following this is ready for a rice nomination. on john kerry, this would be the worst pick for secretar
with john mccain and the way the rest of congress is viewing him on this? >> right. so you've been covering this well in the sense that republicans are not used to the obama administration pushing back. they're not used to the obama coming with a fire in the belly and really confronting them on accusations and insinuations that they've been launching for the last four years without a lot of resistance, without a lot of contradiction. let's remember the politicization of the benghazi issue started with the mitt romney campaign, on the night of the attack. he then harangued the entire republican caucus into joining him on that. now the mitt romney campaign is gone leaving guys like john mccain holding the bag. he's committed to the strategy and has to go forward. now that president obama called him out on public television during a press conference, he has no choice but to double down. and stories like these where he missed the hearing that he was calling for undermine his argument that the obama administration is not giving him enough information. and pushes him back into the argument the ob
